This dissertation was written as a part of the MSc in Energy Systems of the International Hellenic University. Nowadays a more rational waste management stream is considered necessary due to the environmental, economic and social demand. The willingness for the minimization of the accumulated waste and the increased energy demand led to the development of the third generation waste management systems. Such systems are the Waste to Energy facilities which are considered friendly for the environment and the society. This dissertation studies the transformation of two Greek islands Skopelos and Kos in a third generation waste management stream with recovery of energy. Moreover, it is included a detailed research on which is the optimum waste to energy technology between combustion, gasification and anaerobic digestion. The effort of comparison between the pre mentioned alternatives created a software program helping the decision makers and engineers to select the optimum technology in mechanical, financing and environmental terms. In the end of this dissertation a parametric analysis and some conclusions, extracted from the software program, concerning the financing viability of the waste to energy facilities in the two case studies and in general, are presented.
